The Austrian paper industry is committed to a quality-orientated training of apprentices. It considers a high qualification of its apprentices and employees as a central element in safeguarding Austria’s position as a business location.
Most jobs offered in paper mills are technologically demanding and require a basic knowledge of scientific principles.
More Female Apprentices
There is an encouraging rise in the percentage of female apprentices in technical professions, such as paper engineering. This has resulted from the revision of the law prohibiting women from working at night. Now also women are permitted to work night shifts.
